RSL’s war po­ems si­lence assem­bly

Isis Town and Country - - News -

CORDALBA State School stu­dents lis­tened in si­lence as RSL mem­bers shared po­ems at a spe­cial assem­bly on Mon­day morn­ing.

The assem­bly was partly a prac­tice run for Tues­day’s Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony at Cordalba ceno­taph, as stu­dents had a fi­nal op­por­tu­nity to re­hearse their pre­sen­ta­tions.

RSL mem­bers David Barker, Glen Tan­cred, and Les and Daphne Sum­mer­field at­tended the assem­bly, with Mr Barker com­per­ing pro­ceed­ings.

Mr Barker shared two po­ems, be­fore Mr Tan­cred ren­dered the room silent as he shared a tale re­mind­ing us to re­mem­ber the horses and other an­i­mals that died by our An­zacs’ sides.

Mr and Mrs Sum­mer­field handed each stu­dent a poppy to wear on their uni­form.
